're not going to balance the budget in ten years because if you look at what paul ryan does to balance the budget, it means that you have to voucherize medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. >> jon: so president obama there appearing on abc telling george stephanopoulos that balancing the budget is not his goal and attacking congressman paul ryan for the budget that he proposed. so, jim, to you first. did the media ignore the president's contention that a balanced budget is not really in the realm for him? >> i don't think the media have ever thought of that as a particularly high goal for themselves and yet, as scott loopo, american conservative and matt miller "the washington post," both pointed out the problem the president's had on this sort of moderate budget course he's trying to strike, which is part tax increases and part this alleged spending cuts, nobody is really for that and too vague and also used the word gut g-u-t when it refers to medicare i think is the beginning of the 201
to "hannity," the chance for reeconomic prosperity has been unveiled. paul ryan will be joining me momentarily to detail his bold and controversial budget plan. let's look at what he's proposing and why the democrats and president need to listen and act. according to the fiscal blueprint, the budget will be balanced in ten years and will not raise taxes. how does he accomplish this? he doesn't spend what we don't have. here is how the congressman explained it earlier today. >> this budget cuts spending by 4.6 trillion dollars offer the next ten years. historically we've paid a little less than 1/5 of our income to the federal government, but the government has spent a lot more. we match revenues with expenditures, so the budget matches the spending with income just like every family and business must do throughout america. >> sean: to help us reach this balanced budget in ten years, congressman ryan lays out four major issue we as a country must tackle. first, energy. ryan's plan paves a path for affordable and american produced energy, most notably, the plan green lights the keystone pipeline
. let's remember the president said this earlier this week: >> paul ryan today put forthhis budget and is challenging you to come forward with a budget that also reaches balance. are you going to do that? >> no. we're not going to balance the budget in ten years, because if you look at what he does to balance the budget, you have to voucherrize medicare. you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. >> let's not do that. our commander-in-chief doesn't think we need a balanced budget, and his democratic cohorts in the senate appear to agree with him. senator patty murray, the democratic chair of the senate budget committee, finally released their liberal budget plan, and in the next ten years in their budget government spending would increase by over $2 trillion. that's a 58% increase, but that's not all. the republicans on the senate budget committee also crunched the numbers and under the democrats' plan they would race taxes by $1.5 trillion. they just raised taxes. why would anyone think this budget
's not at the top of my list. and he's more interested -- i mean, he thinks that the paul ryan budget really hurts education and research. and he thinks if the government doesn't invest in education and research, then we will not be internationally competitive. the republicans have a completely different view. it's great that they're talking. i think it's wonderful that they're talking but they are at opposite ends philosophically about this. >>brian: the house says okay, there is the budget. you don't like it? the senate is going to do something interesting. they are going to have a budget. excited about it? a senate republican, snorkelly ayotte on -- senator kelly ayotte on greta van susteren's show last night. >> i'm glad the democrats are finally after four years going to do a budget in the senate but basically he's rendering himself irrelevant because his is going to come after the house puts forth his budget, after the senate does his budget. where is he on this issue? you'd think he would have a fiscal blueprint for the country. i'm on the budget committee and we'll be doing it without his
budget committee paul ryan also expected to speak. yesterday we heard from party leaders that spoke about the future. they didn't really hold back any punches. look at some of that from yesterday, at cpac. >> the premise from the left is clear. they think economic growth depends on a huge, bloated federal government that just keeps growing. that's ridiculous. >> people who disagree on all sorts of things in the real world work together all the time on things they do agree on and there has to be a movement in america for people who believe in limited government, constitutional principles and a free enterprise system and that should be us. >> the gop of old has grown stale and moss-covered. >> our party is enqum pered by an inconsistent approach to freedom. the new gop will need to embrace liberty in both the economic and the personal sphere. [cheers and applause] martha: big response yesterday to rand paul and others. rick perry also got a very positive response from the crowd. we'll bring you highlights as they come in. we'll keep an eye on it. mitch mcconnell is speaking now. more coming
. the white house slamming congressman paul ryan's budget plan yet the white house hasn't bothered to put out its own budget. the law says that the president must submit a budget by the first part of february. and kelly ayotte. >> good to be with you. >> greta: and you're not responsible for the president, but are you curious? >> i'm very curious where it is. you think about it, i'm glad the senate democrats are finally going to do a budget in the senate, but basically he's rendered himself irrelevant because his budget is apparently going to come after the house puts forth its budget, after the senate does its budget, and so, where is he on this issue? you'd think he would have a fiscal blueprint for the country. >> greta: now what i don't get? you're a lawyer, i'm a lawyer and maybe i'm too literal about it he's obligated to do it i think by the first monday in february. presidents before him have also failed and not the first time the president-- and he's failed a number of times. and when all of these presidents, the reason why we have the rules, we have some semblance of order. he said n
. >> they are approaching it from two totally different directions. paul ryan's budget which will balance in 10 years looks and weighs heavily and leans evidence heavily on entitlement reform. medicare, medicaid entitlement reform and repeal of obama care. >> bill: that's ridiculous. those under president obama and that's never going to happen. why would ryan even put it forth when he knows it's not going it happen? isn't that a waste of time? >> the repeal of obama care arguably could be described as sort of cat anyplace for conservatives who want to use that as a rallying cry for political battle. big ticket items that mean a lot. democrats and the president just won't go near it the president came up to the hill today and met behind closed doors with republicans for the first time in no one can remember when. and they said it was a productive meeting, et cetera. the democrats look at the republican budget from paul ryan and they say it's draconian and it's not going to work and that the math is phony and everything else. republicans by contrast have to have a point. democratic proposal to increase taxes
to have to cut kids, cut kids. that's not what paul ryan's budget does, but listen to the democrats the rhetoric, propaganda, misinformation and frankly the lies they continue to tell. let's roll this tape. >> you look at his principles, you look at his vision and they're a nightmare for america, he wants americans to work until they die. he wants poor people who get sick not to be able to see a doctor and not to get the care he needs. not to get better, he wants them to die. >> this is the alternative to balance, it results in unfair tax hikes on middle class americans and results in undue burden on middle class americans through the cuts envisioned. >> this republican budget once again makes an ideological, uncompromising approach to addressing that budget challenge. >> perhaps the best thing i can tell you about the republican budget is that here we go again. >> yesterday americans got their first look at this year's ryan republican budget. turns out it it looks like last year's ryan republican budget and it wasn't the only one. i wasn't the only one that said, gee-whiz, not agai
of the republican party's biggest stars are speaking. congressman paul ryan talked about the federal budget. and donald trump had a word or two about immigration. >> when it comes to immigration, you know that the 11 million illegals even if given the right to vote, you know, you're going to have to do what's right, but the fact is 11 million people will be voting democratic. >> historically we've paid a little less than one-fifth of our income in taxes to the federal government each year. but the federal government has spent a lot more. so our budget matches spending with income. >> again, mitt romney is to speak this hour. his first since losing the presidential race. we'll go there live as he starts talking. but first let's bring in our brianna keilar who is at the conference in maryland. so, brianna, this is romney's first speech. highly anticipated. >> reporter: highly anticipated his first major speech, fredricka, since his loss in november. we saw him give an interview recently to fox news channel. but as you can imagine it's very different i think sitting down one-on-one with someon
spending up to near 25% of gdp. paul ryan in his proposal down to 19 1/2% over ten years. the gap between what barack obama is willing to do and what the republicans want to do is enormous. these are huge numbers and the idea that obama is going to do a compromise with them in the space in between i think is very unlikely, paul. >> paul: the other thing the president said this week that was interesting to republicans is, you need me, you need me to be able to sell and reform of medicare and medicaid and giant programs to democrats. they'll never go along with it otherwise. is he right about that? >> look, if he's right or he's wrong, he shouldn't say it. one shouldn't say those taunting things to a group one is trying to do negotiation with. and to dan's point, one of the problems i think that the president has had in the polls is that he seems very often now not to be telling the truth. and in ways that are apparent to the american people. terrible things will happen with the sequester, nothing bad happens. well, we are going to cancel white house tours. oh, by the way, i didn't cancel t
, and while they said paul ryan's plan as extreme and tonight there are questions of the democrat's budget by patty murray and why are they saying they'll reduce 1.9 billion dollars declining to account for the spending. he confronted murray's staff yesterday. take a look. >> and we're looking at a situation, where you're double counting and not counting a trillion dollars in extra spending. you're not counting a trillion dollars in extra spending by saying we're going to just turn off the sequester which allows a trillion dollars more in spending to occur and not count it. that's what we want to know and we intend to find out before this day is over and my colleagues, if i'm wrong about this, i'll accept being in error, but our staff has looked at this. i can't possibly see how it's any other way than i have explained it. now, we've got other members who want to ask questions. >> yes, we do-- >> a trillion dollars, we're really showing how it is that our country is in such financial state. >> senator jeff sessions. here is what else we know about the murray budget. according to the budget
, was next and former vice-presidential candidate paul ryan followed at 6%. as you saw, the two at the top of the poll were tea party favorites. the other highlight had a rocky road just to get to washington. starting with a rough-and-tumble primary battle in texas. i sat down with ted cruz and asked if he was surprised he is taking heat from the left and from within his own party. >> my focus is on addressing the challenges in our country. i think most americans are not really worried about political squabbles in washington. they are frustrated and they are frustrated because it seeps an awful lot of democrats and a fair number of republicans are not standing up and doing the right thing. my focus is to come to work and do my job. and in particular, stand for the constitution. our constitutional liberties are really being undermined right now and champion growth. our economy is stagnant and a lot of people are hurting. and that's where my focus remains, every day. >> shannon: you mentioned that republicans and democrats, you question whether or not they have read the constitution recently
that everyone is talking about. former republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan introduced his plan yesterday. senate democrats unveil their plan later today. in the middle with his own specific ideas, president obama. he's expressing hope that a deal can be reached, but with this caveat. >> but ultimately it may be that the differences are just too wide. if their position is, we can't do any revenue or we can only do revenue if we gut medicare or gut social security or gut medicaid, if that's the position, then we're probably going to not be able to get a deal. >> in what's being called a charm offensive, the president is making another trip to capitol hill this afternoon. this time he will be meeting with house republicans. joined now by wolf blitzer to help us sort this whole thing out. you know, is it fair to call what the president is doing a charm offensive? is charm the right word? is he really making any progress here, wolf? >> if you invite somebody out to dinner, you know, that could be a charm offensive as he did last week. he invited them over for lunch. going up to the
lone. >> president obama in washington and green energy and on the other side is congressman paul ryan and our exploding debt. we have our reporter from washington, dc. >> rive paul ryan took to the stage on friday bringing a very serious focused tone dug the 15 minute speech saying and i quote, "a debt crisis would be more than an economic event but it would be a moral failure." he debuted the budget plan wants to cut $4.6 trillion the next decade and he wants to cut obamacare. he said the debt will weigh down the country. >> unemployment is 7.7 percent. 46 million people are living in poverty today in america. the president says we are in a recovery. i say we are in critical care. >> things will be worse. by the end of 2023, the economy will be at a crawl. we will have $8 trillion added to the debt. >> in a trip to a national laboratory outside of chicago, the president made a number of very light-hearted comments about the impact of the sequester. the speech went on to focus on the energy proposal. >> those who have chairs, lease feel free to sit down, everyone was standing and i th
party will speak at cpac. paul ryan will speak, wayne la pierre and later today, rick santorum will take the stage. mitt romney will speak later this afternoon. cpac, the largest gop gathering of its kind and the opportunity to refine the party's message. al cardenis joins us, from national harbor, maryland, chair of the american conservative union. welcome, al. >> just a mithank you, carol. great to have cnn. >> glad are you speaking with us this morning. some conservatives have talked about being more inclusive and yet gay republican groups like go proud aren't included in cpac. rob portman and dick cheney have come out in support of same-sex marriage. will the gop change position? will cpac ever change position and allow gay republicans to sit at the table? >> look, there are a few ground rules here at cpac. one, we discuss all of our serious subjects with civility. we love and respect each other, and we have had two panels yesterday, almost back to back. we had a panel post hosted by our friends involving advocates of the gay meaning movement and another panel arguing in favor of tra
the election to minorities and women. there has been a lot of talk about that and running mate, paul ryan says it's really not helpful to talk but republicans should be doing to actually meeting people to court them. listen. >> we can't just talk about these communities. we have to talk about with them. we have to engage them because leaders, leaders don't just speak up. they listen too. >> reporter: ryan as the party's former vice president nominee. he insists he is not thinking about running in 2016 but he has tremendous amount of work to do. it will be a lost attention and with it a lot of scrutiny which could make it both a lot of attention and harder to run for office for the presidency. >> harris: we see the speaking continues. in a couple of hours. big headliner for tonight. >> reporter: jeb bush, former florida governor will be speaking tonight. he has for years said he is not the slightest bit interested in running for president. couple weeks ago, that all changed. he quite dramatically he is no longer saying no, but this is the 2013 conservative political action conference. all of th
. today among the speakers at cpac, mitt romney and paul ryan spoke on the second day. "special report" starts at 6:00 eastern. now back to fork and my colleagues with "the five." >> eric: welcome back. greg thinks social media emasculating member. i think libs are turning us in a nation of wussies. bob thinks real men wear suspenders and smoke cigars. we're probably all right, but nothing compares to this. bastion of brutality, the main event is conditioning banning running backs leading to a tackle with their heads. that is the time of end of times. cowboy emmitt smith agrees. listen. >> eric: n.f.l. should consider implementing this rule. what do you think? >> bob: the way they propose it, you can keep your head down in the tackle box from where you set up on the offense and defense in that area. if you have someone big coming at you? what are you going to do, put your chest out? >> kimberly: your heart. >> greg: lead with your feelings. >> bob: there are things they can do to deal with the concussions but this is credit. >> eric: if you can't lead with your head, lead with your sho
of the year. thousas are taking part in cpac 2013 including big names like marco rubio, paul ryan, jeb bush, rand paul. one or all four of those men could end up fighting it out for the republican presidential nomination in 2016. but this cpac better known as the conservative political action conference sometimes is described as part rally, part political revival, part family reunion. thank you for giving us that qualification. one thing they do is they have a vote. a straw poll of the big names in the republican party to see who is potentially up there in the big names for 2016. sarah palin, on it. won it way back in the day. jeb bush, not on it. jeb bush not on the list. one of the biggest names talked about. why. >> he would be formidable if he were to seek the republican national convention. he's promoting his new book on immigration. we are told from sources that he asked that his name not be on the straw poll. that was his basic decision though he's a major speaker there. we'll see who wins the straw poll. it doesn't necessarily mean that whoever wins will get that republican presiden
. just one day after the house budget committee approved paul ryan's blueprint plan which would balance the budget in a decade. patty murray released a plan which would cut annual deficits, but leave the country with a $566 billion shortfall after ten years. this while that back and forth continues on another issue, the white house tours. who exactly is to blame? the president said during an interview, it wasn't up to him. and inconsistent response from that of its press secretary, jay carney. >> you know, i have to say, this was not a decision that went up to the white house, but what the secret service explained to us was that they're going to have to furlough some folks. >> we had to cancel the tours. it's our job to cancel the tours. they can not cancel them. so because this is not a tour of the secret service building. it's a tour of the white house and the grounds. we run the tours. >> raising eyebrows is the president's comments during an interview where he said the u.s. debt, which is inching closer and closer to 17 trillion, is, quote, not an immediate crisis. republican senat
for a balanced budget and 4.6 trillion dollar deficit reduction over ten years, that's the paul ryan budget. while democrats opening offer, no balance and about 1.85 trillion in deficit reduction. >> tucker: so, is a compromise possible? if so, how far away are we away from that. >> clayton: let's ask fox news host sunday, chris wallace. >> happy st. patrick's day to you. >> clayton: and to you as well. it seems like there are two dog and pony shows going on. the house budget rolled out and the senate budget being rolled out and we both know they have no prayer of being passed. so will a grand bargain somehow emerge from these two dog and pony shows? >> it depends whether you think the glass is a quarter full or three quarters empty. the republicans the first time-- rather the democrats the first time in four years are even proposing a budget you should see as a good sign. as you pointed out on the graphic on the screen. a difference, the republicans more than twice as big as the democrats and it's all spending cuts and the democrats have, you see 1.85 trillion and half of that, almost a tr
